Hello everyone! Today, I have two cards to share with you today for Papertrey Ink’s November release. The design team is featuring two new stamp sets and a a new die collection. Everyday Happiness is a sentiment-only stamp set with the most common occasions that most people need cards for at different times of the year. Year Round Happiness is another sentiment-only stamp set with holidays that come throughout the year. These two new stamp sets pair up perfectly with the new One Liner: Happy die collection. These new items will be available to purchase on November 15 at 10PM EST.
I designed an anniversary card using Happy Hydrangea. After stamping the hydrangeas, I stamped a background onto kraft cardstock using another new stamp set, Background Basics: Needlepoint. Next, I added the One Liner: Happy die cut and the sentiment.

Monday was Veterans Day, so I wanted to design a card for my mom who served during the Vietnam War. On the background, I used an ink pad design technique I shared in a Make It Monday video here. Using Mat Stack 7 dies, I created a replica of a shield, similar to what you may see in the armed services and paired it up with Military Stars. I layered the ‘shield’ with the veterans day sentiment from Year Round Happiness. Last, I added a banner using One Liner: Happy and Super Star Borders die.
For the banner, I die cut it twice – first from blueberry sky felt, then again from pure poppy felt. Next, I removed the HAPPY letters from each die cut and added the pure poppy HAPPY letters to the blueberry sky felt.
